Surrounded by Light

Surrounded by Light we are.(4x)

Bring in the angels, sing in the angels,
Let them come and watch us play.
Bring in the angels, sing in the angels,
Let them come and watch us pray.

Bring in the angels, sing in the angels,
Let them come and watch us play.
Bring in the angels, sing in the angels,
Let them come and watch us pray. 

On our right Michael, Behind us Gabriel, On our left Uriel, In front of us Raphael.
On our right Michael, Behind us Gabriel, On our left Uriel, In front of us Raphael.
And on our heads and over our heads, the presence of the One.
And on our heads and over our heads, the presence of the One.
And on our heads and over our heads, the presence of the One.
And on our heads and over our heads, the presence of the One.

Surrounded by Light we are.(4x)

Bring in the angels, sing in the angels,
Let them come and watch us play.
Bring in the angels, sing in the angels,
Let them come and watch us pray.

Bring in the angels, sing in the angels,
Let them come and watch us play.
Bring in the angels, sing in the angels,
Let them come and watch us pray. 

On our right Michael, Behind us Gabriel, On our left Uriel, In front of us Raphael.
On our right Michael, Behind us Gabriel, On our left Uriel, In front of us Raphael.
And on our heads and over our heads, the presence of the One.
And on our heads and over our heads, the presence of the One.
And on our heads and over our heads, the presence of the One.
And on our heads and over our heads, the presence of the One.

Surrounded by Light we are.(10x)

NOTES

To understand some of the song words it helps to know the cardinal angels and their directions. They are Raphael (east)  Michael (south),  Gabriel (west) and Uriel (north).

cardinal angels

When you stand facing east (the direction of beginnings, the sunrise, etc.), on your right hand to the south stands the angel Michael.  Behind you to the west stands Gabriel.  To your left side in the north is Uriel.  And in front of you, since you are facing east, is Raphael.

More info about the Archangels of the Four Directions at ThoughtCo.

Song seems inspired by the Jewish Special Prayer for Protection at Night

In the name of Adonai the God of Israel:
May the angel Michael be at my right,
and the angel Gabriel be at my left;
and in front of me the angel Uriel,
and behind me the angel Raphael…
and above my head the Sh’khinah (Divine Presence).

Fire of Creation

℗ 2007 Abigail McBride

It starts very quietly
It starts with a spark
It starts in the center
It starts in the heart

Fire of creation
Fire of purification
Fire of transformation
Fire of illumination

Illuminate us
Create us anew
Purify and transform
Make us like you

I Am the Goddess

(by White Horse Spirit)

I am the goddess
And I am the light

I am the stars
And I am the night

I am the sun
And I am the moon

I am the power
and I am the truth

I am the maid
And I am the crone

I am the maid
and the Queen on the throne
I am the fountain
And I am the source

I am the thorn
And I am the rose
I am the Earth
And I am the sky

I am the river
and I am the fire

I am all feelings
And I am love

I am all time
before time had begun

(repeat from top)

I am all women
and I am all men

I am all Life
and I am all Death
I am the Goddess
You are the Goddess
We are the Goddess
We.  Are. One.

Hymn to Herne

Song: Hymn To Herne
Artist: S. J. Tucker
Album: Blessings

You can say your prayers
Work your rites
Burn your little candles
Day and night

You can shimmy till dawn
To the pounding drums
But you best be ready
When the Horned One comes, yeah

If you wake to the sound
Of a hunting horn
dance a ring
In the gathering storm

If the Solstice time gets
Your panties in a wad
It’s just the coming
Of the Horned God

He will call you out
Make you sweat
Give you a blessing
That you’ll never forget

So revel in the chase
And let your heartbeat run
Blessed are the children
Of the Horned One

Blessed are the children
Of the Horned One

Hunter who tracks
Outside of time
Guardian lord
Of ancient rhyme

Brother stag
In the musky glen
And consort of the Goddess
In her woodland den

We call you forth
As we make our way
Walking in your power
Every day

Guide us true
In our hunt this night
and maybe even later
In the Great Rite

He will call you out
Make you sweat
Give you a blessing
That you’ll never forget

So revel in the chase
And let your heartbeat run
Blessed are the children
Of the Horned One

Blessed are the children
Of the Horned One

If you wake to the sound
Of a hunting horn

Dance a ring in
The gathering storm

Revel in the chase
And let your heartbeat run

But you’d best be ready
Little one
You’d best be ready
When the Horned One comes

He will call you out
Make you sweat,
give you a blessing
That you’ll never forget

So revel in the chase
And let your heartbeat run
Blessed are the children
Of the Horned One

Blessed are the children
Of the Horned One
